Kieran Trippier is desperate to return to the Premier League this summer, as the England right-back waits to see whether or not Manchester United make a new bid for him.

United have already failed in at least one bid to sign Trippier, with Atletico Madrid wanting around £30m (€35m) for the 30-year-old.

Trippier has a year remaining on his Atletico contract, which also includes the option of a 12-month extension, but the former Tottenham Hotspur man is ready to tell the Spaniards that he wants to return to England.

It is understood that two other Premier League clubs, apart from United, have shown an interest in signing Trippier, but a move to Old Trafford is believed to be his preference.

Trippier performed solidly for England in the European Championships and provided the cross from which United left-back Luke Shaw scored in the final against Italy. His performances, many of which came in a back four or five that also included United captain Harry Maguire, as well as Shaw, will have only heightened interest in Trippier.

But, having spent £73m (€85m) on Jadon Sancho, United ideally want to sell players before deciding whether or not to make another bid for Trippier, who was born in Bury and started his career at Manchester City.

Trippier’s family are United fans and a return to Manchester would be considered a move home for the player.

During his two years in Spain, Trippier last season became a La Liga champion.
